Prepare Your Salsa
  1. PEEL husks off of tomatillos and wash thoroughly.  Discard any bruised or discolored tomatillos; core and roughly chop remaining.  Transfer to food processor and process in batches to finely chop. Repeat with onion, jalapeno and garlic.   
  2. COMBINE chopped vegetables, sugar and salt in a large saucepan and heat to a boil.  Simmer over medium heat for about 15-20 minutes, stirring occasionally until tender and slightly thickened.  Remove from heat and stir in lime juice and cilantro.  
Preserve Your Salsa
  1. UNLOCK and open Appliance Lid.
  2. REMOVE one hot jar. Close Lid, but do not lock, to keep remaining jars hot. Ladle hot salsa into jar, leaving 1/2-inch headspace. Remove air bubbles and adjust headspace, if necessary, by adding more salsa. Wipe rim of the jar. Center new lid on jar. Twist on band until fingertip tight. Return filled jar onto Rack in Inner Pot.
